What is the show about?
Two women, both of them actresses, meet in a quiet restaurant late Christmas Eve afternoon. Estelle (Carrie Hennessey) arrives in a happy mood, laden with Christmas shopping bags. Without invitation, she joins Lisa (Sarah Fitch) and launches into a stream of patronizing gossip about her marital happiness, her children, and the devotion of Harold, her husband. It would seem Lisa apparently had been close friends with him in the past. Estelle put an end to the relationship.
The music is composed by Hugo Weisgall and the libretto is by Richard Henry Hart. The Stronger is based on the August Strindberg play of the same name.
